A beautiful start

A beautiful startI like this image the light coming through is fantastic and very well caught however I feel the image is a bit flat looking and lacking in contrast. I have done a couple of mods for you in the first I just increased contrast by using curves (photoshop CS3) then used the burn tool on foreground to darken it and the dodge tool on the top of the trees to bring the detail back into them. In the second mod I had a bit of fun with your image and added selective colour to it, I started off with my first mod then created a new layer set to soft light chose the paint brush tool and just coloured in the rays and the area's where the rays fell with the obvious colours. I also used a red on the car to obtain a focal point within the image, then I reduced the opacity of the new layer to 37%.

Village

Villagethese do look lke nice little village shops unfortunately having the tree right in the centre of them doesn't help the composition and the image looks titled slightly, I have done a quick mod for you in which I attempted to straighten up the image, added colour to the sky (just selected it and painted over the top) and cropped to put the tree on the thirds line. hope this helps

Rolling stone

Rolling stoneThis is a great action shot, but I dont think the contrast is quite there , I've uploaded a mod for you where I have selected the background and increased the saturation slightly, then inverted the selcetion and increased the contrast of the man by giving it a little curves adjustment. I also cropped the image to make the man and jet ski more prominent in the image although I'm not sure whether the crop works or not.

Island Fling

Island FlingI like this image, but as already said the rocks in the background stop your daughter standing out of the image, I have had a go at a mod using photoshop cs3 in which I cloned out most of the rocks from the sea and created a new layer using soft light at 50% opacity and carefully added a slight bit of colour to the sea.

PS technics

PS technicsJust done a really quick mod for you, rather then trying to cut the boy out and paste him onto a white backround I selected him using the quick select tool and used the refine mask to get the edges as close as I could around him, I then just altered the backgound using curves until it was a clean white background. I also used a little curves on the baby to get a more even skin tone, and cropped the image in a bit, hope this helps.
